Across the Pacific, again...

31 July 2011 | Morro Bay, Ca.
Wow, what a crossing: it took 30 days in total, 3,200 miles sailed. It took two weeks to get up and over the High, which meant we had to sail from a latitude of Puerta Vallarta to almost Portland before we could head east for the CA coast which took another 2 weeks to cross. We had 24 days of good sailing, 4 days of no wind & had to motor, and 2 days of tough sailing through a Gale as we approached San Francisco. That Gale was hectic but fun at the same time.

As we dropped anchor in Morro Bay at midnight, the feelings of accomplishment, excitement & exhaustion overwhelmed the senses. We are so grateful for a safe & successful crossing. svFreedom performed fabulously, along with her team, including our 12 yr old crew member, Raymond, who did a great job managing his 4 hour shift each night.

Now, were in Morro Bay, enjoying the abundances of farmer's markets, long hot showers & sleeping through the night. We've got a good friends here, Arron Rittger & his family, with whom we'll spend time & enjoy the comforts of shore-life. Soon though, we'll be heading South for the Ranch (Cojo Point) and Channel Islands before our eventual arrival back in San Pedro this Fall.
